If you’re feeling down, unproductive, kind of gross and like you’re going throughout your day with no direction, you’re not alone! That kind of feeling is really easy to sink into! But there are a few ridiculously easy and effective ways to put that feeling back in it’s place. I’ve listed 3 that I believe have helped me a LOT in my unfruitful moods.
I 110% believe that showers hold unprecedented power that we for some reason, just don’t acknowledge. If you’ve ever felt instantaneously better after a shower, there’s real reason for it. Showers just tend to cleanse our soul and mind as they cleanse our physical being. They bring on inspiration, uplifted moods and more productivity and energy throughout the day. It goes even better when you add some tunes, crank that crap and jam the heck out. If you’re goin’ through it, seriously, go jump in the shower. Those private dance parties and thoughts do wonders.
I feel like a broken record, but journaling out positive thoughts really does help create a happier mood. Taking even 2-5 minutes to list out things you’re happy about and grateful for can do wonders for your mood. Journaling is such an easy and effective activity to participate in. Even if you’re not journaling everyday, journaling 3-5 times throughout the week can help you out so much. I find it easiest to journal at the end of the day, and I typically take a few minutes to list the good/happy things that happened to me during that day. Actively bringing on that positivity will automatically start pushing that negativity out, so give it a try!
Take an hour or two a day to just disconnect from the world. Hide your phone, silence it, or do whatever you need to so that you can just enjoy some serenity throughout the day. When we’re bored, inspiration comes about, creativity and passion arises. Disconnecting from social media and the constant influx of media and influences allows you to stay in tune with your own being. Being alone with oneself is really the key to creating happiness and accomplishing goals. It allows you to check off some of those chores Allowing yourself to really just focus on you and your mind for a bit—undistracted—will bring so much good to your life. Taking anywhere between 45 minutes to two hours a day to hone in on yourself and your passions will benefit you in SO many ways.
The simplest activities are often the most overlooked, but they really do so much good for us. The simplicity of tasks sometimes leaves people wondering if it really works or does anything. But the willingness to try these tasks, along with some consistency, can not only help you create your happier mood, but can continue to change your entire life overall. So give them a try.
Helping you take back your control and improve productivity.
